Abstract
An aggressive destruction pattern resulting in joint deformation has not be en described in skeletal cystic angiomatosis (SCA) so far. We present the c ase of a 6-year-old boy with such findings strongly resembling Gorham's dis ease (massive osteolysis). Since the prognosis of the latter entity tends t o be less favorable than in SCA, particularly SCA without extraskeletal inv olvement, careful differentiation of both disorders appears to be important .
